  • Mitsuishi Rocks

    Kanagawa Pref. Ashigarashimogunmanadurumachi Manaduru
    This scenic spot on the Manazuru Peninsula has been selected as one of the top 50 views in Kanagawa Prefecture. The three enormous formations that constitute the Mitsuishi Rocks rise from the water at the tip of the Manazuru Peninsula. Manazuru Peninsula is said to have been created from a lava dome produced by the Hakone volcano that erupted from the seabed. A roughly 20-meter high cliff extends down its coast and a shore reef reaches about 200 meters from Manazuru Cape, so you can walk across to the rocks at low tide. It is a popular spot for exploring the rocky shore with the superb view stretched out before you.

    Kanagawa Aiko-gun Aikawamachi Hanbara
    This location along the Miyasawa River (Matsubasawa), a tributary of the Nakatsu River flowing through Aikawa Town a 20-minute drive from the Sagamihara-Aikawa Interchange on the Ken-O Expressway via Prefectural Route 54, is famous for its fireflies. The local Matsubasawa Firefly Preservation Society has created a Semisulcospira libertine snail nursery along the river and has engaged in activities promoting the breeding and preservation of the area's fireflies for many years. Today, visitors can still see many Genji and Heike fireflies in the area; in most years, the fireflies can be found through the end of June. The area was also selected for inclusion in the Environment Agency's list of a selection of local areas across Japan home to various animals.

Kanagawa Areas

around-area-map

Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
